Podcast: Episode 8!

It's already been four weeks since our EA Interview Extravaganza, so that means it's time for the eighth episode of the Nintendo Life podcast!


I have been a very, very busy boy! News, reviews, interviews and more - RT @nintendolife: Podcast: Episode 8!

RT @nintendolife Yummy Yummy Cooking Jam (DSiWare) and Wacky World of Sports (Wii) I've been busy!

Review: Yummy Yummy Cooking Jam

A fallen soufflé

You may remember this game from its appearance on WiiWare, so you won't be surprised to know this is a direct port. We didn’t think much to its incarnation on the Wii, particularly struggling with its controls, but now it’s on the DSi is it more to our taste?


Review: Wacky World of Sports

Or should that be "Tacky World of Warts"? Maybe...

It’s a well-known fact that the Wii excels at quick-fire games – sports compilations and minigame packages abound, and amongst all those renditions of golf, tennis, boxing and the rest you’d have to assume there’s no sport on Earth yet to be rendered in glorious Wii-o-vision. Well, you would be wrong, as Tabot have proven with this compilation of decidedly left-field sports. Is there enough to recommend this package above its oddball choice of events, though?

Review: The Elusive Kenji Eno Speaks!

Legendary games industry figure hints at future Nintendo titles

Back in the mid-90s, the games industry was lacking some of the colourful characters that you'll find today, but one man who certainly stood out was Kenji Eno, of Japanese developers Warp. Most well-known for his immersive adventure games Enemy Zero and D, as well as its ill-fated Dreamcast sequel D2, Mr Eno is a colourful character as renowned for his musicianship as his imaginative games.

Review: New Wii Bundle to Hit British Shelves

Grab yourself all sorts of new gubbins for £180

Yes, we've just reported that the Wii's trade price has dropped, but that's not all the good news we have for those Brits yet to take the plunge and buy one of those Wii machines. That's right - biding your time and sitting on the fence may just have got you a good deal, as Nintendo has let slip that the new standard UK Wii hardware bundle is about to get a lot juicier.


Review: UK Wii Price Continues to Resemble Rat Up a Drainpipe

Is it up or down today?

You may recall a few short weeks ago we reported that one UK games retailer had decided to increase the price of Wii consoles, as a result of the increased costs of buying the consoles from Nintendo (something else we covered!).

Review: Cursed Mountain

Have your prayers been answered?

Cursed Mountain, like its ghostly enemies, came out of nowhere to surprise us: a bona fide adult game, where the phrase doesn't equate to gratuitous swearing, gore and nudity, designed exclusively for Wii. With a story heavy on Buddhist philosophies, a combat system that requires prayer gestures and plenty of other oddities, it's certainly unlike anything on this or any other console, but is there a good reason for that?
